Foamy Sea Stripes

seafoam seafoam

This mint/seafoam hue may be one of my favorite colors for spring (a nice break from the J.Crew-deemed "modern red" that's been my go-to forever it's just a break though, we've got too much of a history together). And to me, this milky green just works so well with blue and white stripes. I will likely wear this combination out!

What color(s) are you loving to wear this spring?

  2. I've just purchased the Boden lightweight v-neck in this colour as they sent me a voucher and even in my regular size I can still wear them with my bump. In fact it arrived today and is under my desk :)

    You look lovely Lisa, very spring-like and jolly!

  6. This is such a pretty color combo on you! How do these J.Crew tees hold up? I've been eyeing them for a while since there are so many pretty colors, but I'm afraid they won't hold up in the wash!

    1. I think they hold up pretty well in terms of color and I've had no problems with holes developing or anything, but I find that they shrink a bit after washing, so I always order a size up. JCF always has promos and good sales, so you can likely snag a few tees for cheap to try out.

  7. That's a great color combination. I just got the J.Crew No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Colorblock Stripe (which is navy and white), so you've given me another idea on how to style it. Now if it would just get out of the 50's here! Cheers - Jennifer

  9. I love this combination! Stripes are always a favorite, but with this bright and cheery shirt, it's even better!

  10. Since we still don't have a real spring yet here I'm stuck in Autumn colours. I like bold colour though, so even in the spring summer I stay away from pastels.

    I love your choice of foot ware.

    1. This is about as pastel-y as I get - I usually look pretty washed out in pale pinks and lavender especially.

  15. I'm jealous of your bare arms and legs! Spring is slowly coming here, but I'll be in tights for at least another month. I suppose I should start wearing more spring-y colours now though...

    1. With a pup, tights are not my friend. Loads of dog hair and scratches!

  16. Pretty, pretty! I love mint for spring, but I'm still hanging on to coral with all my might.

  18. Weirdly, I am loving grey for spring. And florals, of course - how groundbreaking of me! ;)
    Also, that bracelet is so cool! It's like preppy steampunk on your arm!

  21. I love green for spring - grass green. I have not taken the mint plunge yet but it sure is pretty. Love the necklace and it's ombre effect.

  36. I love how the necklace has that pop of blue stones on one side. It's very pretty.
    I bought a similar bow belt at Target that was like the Anthropologie one they did a few years back. The bow belts add a nice little touch to outfits.
    Have a great weekend,
    Stacey
